Tens of thousands of demonstrators' march through the streets of NY and nationwide, against the immigration policies of US President Donald Trump.
BuzzFeed News announced this week that it was uniting with ProPublica, The Intercept, Univision News, Animal Politico and Plaza Publica to gather research about the Trump administration's "zero tolerance" policy, which seeks to prosecute anyone crossing into the USA illegally via the southern border.
Singer John Legend serenaded the crowd and Democratic politicians who have clashed with Trump had strong words for the president, including U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters who called for his impeachment.
Rallies are also planned in Los Angeles, New York City, Chicago, Las Vegas and Puerto Rico.
Thousands of protesters in NY marched across the Brooklyn Bridge bearing signs with slogans like "Make America Humane Again" and "Immigrants Are Welcome Here".
But the Trump administration points out that most of those migrants never showed up for court. The Trump administration has been saying that it will try to change a 31-year old consent decree, called the Flores agreement, which bars the federal government from detaining children for longer than 20 days and thus prevents the indefinite detention of families.

Activists carry signs across the Brooklyn Bridge during a rally to protest the Trump administration's immigration policies Saturday, June 30, 2018, in New York, New York. "I think it's really cruel to separate kids", she said. It is also clearly trying to take advantage of the legal gray area introduced by the new injunction. As the Washington Posthas pointed out, it's possible that the judge who now oversees the Flores agreement, Dolly M. Gee, will agree with the DOJ argument, but it's also possible she won't and insist on a different solution, including the arguably superior practice of releasing migrants into the USA with monitoring bracelets.
The Los Angeles march will be the second major demonstration focused on the Trump administration's immigration policy to be held within a week downtown, following a series of protests and rallies that occurred Tuesday when Attorney General Jeff Sessions came to town for a speech.

"It hit me in the heart. There's nothing like a wounded animal", she said. "I just don't see how a human being would do such a thing". "We must come together to stop this", said Ann Morgan of Scott Township.
In Washington, D.C., an estimated 30,000 marchers gathered in Lafayette Park across from the White House in what was expected to be the largest protest of the day, stretching for hours under a searing sun. "We have to speak out now while we can, before we can't".
One protest sign read, "Compassion not cruelty" while another said simply: "Vote".
